Today's most popular choice of front door is a "Composite Door" - but the name doesn't tell the full story, because a Composite Door means it's a door made up of various material types, which vary manufacturer to manufacturer
The most popular combination of materials is GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) or Fibre Glass skins with a polyurethane (high-density foam) core, but really they could be literally made up of any combination of materials. Increasing in popularity because of their strength is "Solid Timber Core" Composite Doors, which typically use an Engineered Wood section in place of the foam. Other materials used to create different brands of composite door include PVCu, Polystyrene, and more
Composite Windows on the other hand only have a very small market share in the UK, although this seems to be increasing. Options here typically include Glass and Fibre Glass, Aluminium with Timber Internals and more. The idea here is often to provide a robust outter surface with a softer more natural internal finish, like timber
These varying materials all have their benefits, and it is important to review the options, know the construction, and talk with an experienced supplier who isn't tied to just one or two brands so you can get unbiased advice to help you make the right choice for your home. They all exist for a reason, so select the right system for you, you home and your budget
